Some liturgical protestant churches choose to celebrate Rally Days to mark the beginning of the church calendar year, which usually comes at the end of September or the beginning of October. Churches celebrate their Rally Days in various ways, but standard events and customs include handing bibles out to children, celebrating the graduation of Sunday school students from one grade to the next, welcoming new members into the church, and formally presenting church goals for the coming year. The word “rally” in Rally Day signifies that this is a time when all church members can come together and celebrate their shared beliefs, values, and mission.
